Yeah. looks pretty like that for now. The basic requirement would be like having a utility,  to which pcaps can be input and the out put should be our proprietary fields of the packet displayed in a graphical format(maybe using c or pyhton itself.)
But I have no clue as of now about how to proceed further. Any suggestions and pointers to acvance me further would be greatly appreciated.

So maybe you could write new frontend for wireshark?
IMHO it would be great if wireshark would have ncurses frontend :)
